When You Least Expect It

By Robi Ludwig

You don’t know what you don’t know. That’s what many people bank on. Mistakes and missteps at home, in the car or even on vacation leave those impacted at a great loss. Personal injury legalities can be tricky – if you have the right ally in your corner, it can make all the difference.

LA-based personal injury attorney Mariam Kuregyan leads the team at the Davana Law Firm and wakes up everyday ready to fight for the victims who are counting on her. She uses her sharp wit, her unique approach to cumbersome cases and her extreme empathy to get her clients what they truly deserve – compensation.

What is the most gratifying part of personal injury law?

The most gratifying part of my job is helping those who are at their lowest both physical and emotionally. I witness their healing journey and it’s extremely profound!

What strengths do you possess in this legal specialty as a woman?

Being a woman is certainly an advantage in the personal injury practice simply because women have the innate ability to listen, relate, nurture, empathize, and offer solutions.

What is the most common personal injury case you tend to take?

Auto accident and premises liability cases (slip and fall/trip and fall). In California that’s quite common and we have a great deal of experience in this space.

What are the biggest mistakes people make in connection with home-injury cases you take?

The most common mistake people make is that an injured individual waits too long to seek legal advice and/or attorney retention. Time is of the essence in all personal injury cases. We must 1. establish liability (who’s is at fault); 2.  preserve the evidence; and finally, 3. document thoroughly the severity of the injury.

Why do so many who are not US Citizens shy away from suing when they are injured?

Stigma, cultural barriers, fear of authority are all factors.

What can be done to rectify that?

Pro bono work, always be approachable, create opportunities to educate the community through outreach programs.

What do you think the biggest factors are which separate you and your practice from your competitors in the LA area?

My team and I are very consistent with delivering excellent results, very committed to rendering help to those who are injured and most importantly we really care!
